Sometimes, the looks featured on the catwalk are a bit intimidating to imitate for day-to-day life. Our Style Gurus have been incorporating designer-inspired statement pieces to rework popular runway designs and be bold this spring. Check out how they’re making trends their own so you can, too!

So Sheer 

A ’90s staple, sheer fabrics are making a big comeback for day and night looks; the John Galliano show featured glam sheer gowns with a minimal spin. Borrow the show’s use of bralettes and add a pair of high-waisted jeans to make it more casual. (Photo via @n_agem)

Geometry Lessons

Lines, boxes, and shapes are everywhere this spring—the bolder the print and brighter the color, the better! Valentino‘s take on the classic striped dress shirt added boxy menswear for added edge. Get spring-ready with some pastel stripes and add some accessories for eye-catching detail. (Photo via @georgiacfashionista)

Pleats, Please

Trousers are back in full-force for spring, especially at the Kenzo show. The fall favorite goes perfectly with both structured blouses or flowy T-shirts—create a neutral spring look by mixing your favorite pair with an earth tone top and block-heel sandals. (Photo via @stylefromalexis)

White Before Labor Day

All white is a crisp look for spring and summer and keeps you cool as the seasons transition over. The Céline show incorporated the trend with lightweight and flowy suits—try our a pair of white trousers for this spring to wear two spring looks at once! (Photo via @chiaracherise)

Words, Words, Words

Graphic T-shirts have been in and out of style for a long time, but they are definitely having a moment right now. Stella McCartney‘s collection used words on experimental bodysuits and dresses, but you can definitely stick to your statement shirts to work with this trend for campus.

The Puffy Shirt

Statement sleeves are perfect to have in your wardrobe, whether you are crafting a look for the day or the evening. In Marques Almeida show, puffy sleeves were front and center. For your own look, try out a blouse with pleats, folds, and belts to get that added drama in your daily life. (Photo via @racfashions)
